Emirates will receive two more A380 aircraft later this month. One of which features its long-awaited signature Premium Economy product. Since it entered into the Emirates fleet 12 years ago, the A380 has been the airline’s flagship plane.

The A380 currently flies to Cairo, Amman, Paris, London, Guangzhou, Manchester and Moscow. Recently, services have been ramped up to four daily A380s on London Heathrow and daily flights to Moscow. The double-decker also demonstrates its versatility by utilisation as a ‘mini-freighter’ on select cargo charter operations. This is to transport urgently required cargo across the Emirates network.

A blend of jet fuel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) powered the delivery flight for the newest member of the Emirates fleet. This is the first time the airline is using sustainable aviation fuel to power an A380. Furthermore, the biofuel used for the flight is produced from used cooking oil in Finland.
